Florida woman calls police on sun

fuckingflorida:

//Residents in the Tampa, Fla. area were treated last week with a sun halo in the sky — a rare phenomenon in which a circle appears to surround the sun. The phenomenon occurs when light from the sun or moon is refracted by ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds.

Many people enjoyed the sight, but the view from the sky alarmed one woman enough to call police from a Tampa bus station to inform them of the weird, big black circle in the sky.

"This has never happened before in Tampa, Fla. Please go outside and look up in the sky and look at this weird object," she pleads with the dispatcher. "It’s a big dark circle and it’s all the way around and it has never been in the United States of America. Never, ever."//

Lost Andy Warhol Artworks Discovered on Amiga Floppies from the ’80s - First official rescue mission and subsequent unearthing of a contemporary artist’s work from an old computer (Amiga 1000). Thanks to the Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Club and a team of artists, archivists and curators who were able to extract some of Warhol’s lost pixels into the physical world. I’m curious about the retrieval process which has been documented by a video crew from the Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) and will be premiering as Trapped: Andy Warhol’s Amiga Experiments on May 10th at the museum. If you can’t make it to the burgh’ you can check out the documentary on its website starting May 12th. * Featured above, Andy Warhol with Debbie Harry at the 1985 Amiga Launch at Lincoln Center
